The book signing will be followed by a seasonal farmers’ market dinner with recipes from Amelia’s book prepared by Brass Cap’s Executive Chef Ricky Moreno.

When: Monday, October 1, 2007 at 6:30pm
Where: The Brass Cap, 100 W. Channel Rd., Santa Monica
Cost: $98.00 per person

The evening includes hors d’oeuvres, Brass Cap cocktail, a copy of the book, and a four-course dinner with wine. Some menu highlights: Heirloom Tomato, Cucumber and Bread Salad; Farmers’ Market Risotto; and Pork Stew with Seasonal Beans and Greens.

A longtime advocate of Slow Food, organic produce, local farmers and farmers’ markets, Amelia’s recipes reflect her love and admiration for the people who grow our food–the farmers–and several farmers whose produce will be showcased on the menu will be in attendance.
